We are all set for an enticing London derby on Wednesday as Arsenal host West Ham hoping to leapfrog their rivals on the EPL table.

The Gunners are currently in sixth place with 26 points after a convincing 3-0 victory against Southampton on Saturday.

West Ham on the other hand are looking to return to winning ways after being held to a barren draw by lowly Burnley at the weekend.

If Arsenal can manage to beat their London rivals, they will leapfrog them and Manchester United by going into fourth place on the log.

Man United were scheduled to play Brentford on Tuesday but the game was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
